Default Where to get a Sarge ISO

In article <200810091523.13863.shawn@willden.org> you write:
>With Lenny inches from release and Etch time-tested and stable, it's an odd

>I just took over management of a production server running Sarge, and I need

We have jigdo files for all of the sarge releases still available, and
full ISO images for the last sarge (3.1_r8).
